PHIL NEVILLE is keen to break the record attendances for a second game in a row after an impressive performance against Brazil.
The Lionesses won 1-0 after Fran Kirby scored an early goal at Notts County on but after the match Neville was already looking towards the next game.
Over 7800 fans watched England beat Brazil for the first time in history and Neville believes that breaking record attendances can be done again when they take on Australia on Tuesday at Craven Cottage.
He said: “We played in front of crowd which made us perform.
I think the Australia game will a lot tougher than this one. The crowd was fantastic.
“I’ve not been to Nottingham in 10-15 years but I love playing in different stadiums and this is the type of stadium which we should be in.
“We can virtually fill it, we can get good attendances, we can get a good atmosphere, the pitch was fantastic.
“What we need now is bigger numbers going to Fulham on Tuesday, we need people watching [on television and in the stadium] thinking that they are keen to see more.
“The players enjoy playing in front of big crowds and today was a good crowd for them.
“We are spreading the word, people genuinely come to watch the quality of the football on show. These are really good players.”
Kirby’s goal after two minutes was enough to get the win but Neville admits that the performance was only about 6/10.
Nikita Parris and Rachel Daly both had chances but neither side could find the back of the net again and the England boss still wants more out of his players.
“I am disappointed we did not score more goals than what we did,” he said.
“It was not a 1-0 type of performance from us. We were not ruthless enough in our finishing. It is something we all saw.
“Players are disappointed in the dressing room, we did not finish the game with the composure that getting a couple of goals allows you.
“When you make four or five substitutions you lose the rhythm a little bit. In the first half I saw things which excited me and will have excited everyone that came and we beat a top ten team which we wanted to do.
“We wanted to be aggressive because we thought they might struggle in this sort of day in Nottingham in October.
“I am slightly pleased but there are things which we can improve from. But we are not playing a Bosnia or a Kazakhstan, we are playing a team who know how to score goals. They players said to me that they can do better and for me that is what matters.”
